We had a great time walking the trails of this huge park. The staff in the Education Center were friendly and helpful. There were many people hiking the 12 trails, too. It was a great experience.

Great place to visit if you love nature and hiking. You can hike the trails or enroll your children in very informative and fun day camps. I have done both personally and loved everything about it.

PEEC is a great place to have a wedding but they accept only a limited number of bookings so it is best to contact them soon.
